Agile expert Doug Rose shows how to report the progress of your agile project using taskboards and burndown charts.
- Agile reports are simple and easy to read. The team uses these reports as information radiators. They'll be on the walls radiating information to everyone in the team. This helps the team communicate and keep the work transparent. We'll start this course by going over the product backlog. This is one of the key reports for the team. The product owner maintains the backlog, but the whole team works to refine user stories. Next, we'll go over the sprint task board. This board gives everyone insight to the team's work.
We'll also look at the two types of burndown charts. These charts help keep track of the project and motivate the team, Finally, we'll see common trouble spots. We'll list out the benefits of the shared workspace and the dangers of retrofitting old reports. This course is the fourth in lynda.com's Agile at Work series. This series is designed to help your team increase the pace and quality of their work. If you're new to agile or not familiar with some of the terms, then you may want to watch the series from the very beginning.
